How to apply my INDEX/MATCH statement to only return data when the is a matcha nd nothing


I have tried using all types of combinations of VALUE() to make the AUTONUMBER column work but I either get Invalid operation or invalid data type:

What I want: When the first (they are both auto numbered) in Sheet A [Auto number] and Sheet B [Auto Number] are equal return the data in Sheet A's [Updates] column to Sheet B

What I get: When they are equal the data in the [Updates] column is returned but when the [Auto number] column in Sheet B is empty it returns the last Updates row.

Formula: INDEX({Updates}, MATCH([Auto number]@row, {Auto Number})))

Sheet A
